Event description

Description

Ever feel like you are stuck using the same strum for every single song you play? In this workshop, we'll explore some of the different textures, rhythms, and tones you can use to accompany songs. We'll introduce basic fingerpicking techniques as well as a few different strumming patterns that will give you more options the next time you sit down to play. Bring along a music stand if you have one, but don't worry if you do not. Following the workshop, Eve will perform a concert upstairs in the beautiful church sanctuary - amazing acoustics!

Eve Goldberg sings music that draws honey from the rock of life. A compelling writer and interpreter, Eve's watercolour voice and solid instrumental style has made her a favourite with audiences across Canada and the US. Her performances on guitar and ukulele are intimate and relaxed, moving effortlessly from folk classics to original gems. Since 1990, she has performed her trademark mixture of folk, blues, country, bluegrass, old time, and jazz in venues across Canada and the US, ranging from small house concerts to the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Along the way she's earned the respect of legendary musicians like Peggy Seeger, Geoff Muldaur, and Penny Lang. She has released three CDs and is currently a member of the folk/roots duo Gathering Sparks.

When she is not performing, Eve specializes in teaching music to adults in community settings. She especially enjoys teaching beginners and strives to create a supportive environment that encourages students at any skill level to learn and grow.

Eve currently leads the Parkdale Ukulele Group and the Ukulele Orchestra of Toronto (Ukes of T). For over twenty years she organized The Woods Music and Dance Camp, an adult folk music retreat in Ontario. She has taught music classes at the James Hill Ukulele Institute (Vancouver, BC and Toronto, ON), Port Townsend Ukulele Festival (Port Townsend, WA), Dock Street Ukulele Camp (Shelburne, NS), Haliburton School of the Arts (Haliburton, ON), Winter Folk Camp (Haliburton, ON), Blue Skies Adult Music Camp (Kingston, ON) and the Midland Uke Fest (Midland, ON), and is in demand as a workshop leader and performer at ukulele events near and far. www.evegoldberg.com
